Maria escaped an abusive upbringing and an abusive relationship, and she was left with nothing to support herself and her two children. Maria’s story could have been a sad one. The many challenges she has faced could have robbed her of joy and happiness, but instead she chose to persevere. She decided to go to Guayaquil for one year to earn some money, and when she came back, the community government decided to give her some land in San Jose. Maria was excited to get her own land; “For us this is a paradise.”
